My point is since I have put a big block in my Nitro TC-3 and the Ofna diffs has stood up to the increase in torque and horsepower that a modified .21-28 can put out it can more than handle the horsepower and torque that a .12 puts out even if it is modified. Just sharing my results you can choose to use it or not it makes no difference to me . NTC3 Onroad in my club we are all a bunch of outlaws none of use have .12's in our cars . I know center of gravity and weight is important but for your information NTC3 Onroad my car does not push thru the turns you are speculating that it does !! The track we have laid out has fast wide sweeping turns and long straightaways it is not a technical track but a high speed road course. When I began this project, Big Block in a TC-3, I was told that my TC-3 would flip over evertime I go into a fast turn, that it would push , if I nailed it, it would spin out, it would have torque steer etc, etc, I have not encountered any of these problems, these speculations are exagerations of what may happen if you don't use common sense to come up with solutions as you going along with your project. I doubt if you ever put 1/8 scale tires on a 1/10 scale car based on what you have said...........you have any pictures of this car??
Yes I have, you think you and a hand full of others have only donw=e this??? WTF Your forgetting what you play with now we designed!! been there done it all. Its not ROAR or and real club racings legal!!! Outlaw racing maybe???? What ever man play game club games, I never said the diffs aren't weak nor did I play games, try and take your car and enter it in a roar sanctioned event (which they would never allow it) run it down like a said a 200 ft. + straight and see what happenns. Cool you have smarts and maybe know CG/ weight transfer or what ever!! (but I don't believe it)!! I worked very close with many engineers on the car, but I guess I know nothing... Hmm !! wonder why AE stop works on the car!! They should have talked to you first I guess!!
I and many others done everything possible to keep the car competitive in actual 10/th scale racing, trying to make the car a 1/8th scale car is not truely racing, Well for you maybe???,
Your playing in some kinda club deal??? not really racing.... I'll just back away here like me and all others have done in the past!! You guys know it all and play games and you new generation of you guys know it all, I completly forgot that man! My fault!!
The site and all are hard earned dollars and research all us done before goes to you!!! Its sad no one will listen here now to real people who raced the car in real competetive style . I guess you guys are wanting to play games!
Hey Dennis,!!!!! I know you give up on all this man!! but, have you read this BS!!!!!!! Well really I hope you have'nt read!! Its sad!! I guess you and palamaries racing or murnan moddifieds never never made any power at all!! stock 18"s made more power than any you modders ever made!! What a laugh!!! If they only knew, right!!!
These guys took 12 engines and made them I guess what new people call 18's easily maybe even 21's in size verious torqe perspective.. I twisted axles like pretzels, before diffs let go, so don't tell me a 12 is weak!! You new kids don't really know HP by these modders, Dennis Richey HP especially, If you did'nt know him you could'nt even get it!! You guys don't even know what you messed 5 years ago!!! we mixed our own fuel and all that BS!! Ever run a 12 on 30 or 40% Nitro!!! We did it every race!!!!!! Try running your motor on 30 or 40 nitro before you talk!!! You really have know Idea what you talk hERE MAN!!!!
I'm done here! Left 4 years ago because all you kinda people came here and tried to tell all us real racers, we knew shit.. When we all spent in 1 year money wise more than most all people here made a year, in 1 race season. Hell, I got probably more in tires and a truer still laying in my basement then most you guys have in your total setup!! Not bragging ,but talking truth not this BS!!
This forum now is really sad, its not anything about real 10th racing, but since the NTC3 is dead I guess kids will be kids!
COME ON, SOMEONE AT RC TECH, PLEASE DELETE ALL REAL RACERS HARD R&D THREADS HERE ON THE NTC3 CAR . Well at least 500 hundred pages!! , All the rest is BS!!!! The new punks don't desire it !!!
God, just think 20 years or less from now all us dumbass oldies will be gone!!! And it will be all on the new generations, who won't work or listen to nothing and know it all!!
THE END OF TIME GUYS IS CLOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YOU KNOW THE EMAIL ADDY IF YOU WANT A NICE DEAL ON NTC3 AND ALL POOR AND SLOW ENGINES and all option parts known and made by every manufacture in the world. Over 7K invested and sell for a song man!!! BB
